Kosher Hot Dogs
Kosher foods are prepared in a way that follows Torah laws and traditions over 3000 years old. Orthodox Jewish people still keep these kosher laws to this day. Kosher meats can come only from animals that have cloven hooves and chew their cud, commonly, cattle, sheep or goats. Domestic poultry such as chicken, turkey and duck is also acceptable. These animals need to go through a kosher slaughtering in order for the meat to be considered kosher. Kosher meat is also drained of all the blood in a special halachic way.
The main difference between kosher and unkosher hot dogs is that kosher hot dogs do not contain pork. Kosher hot dogs also are made from Kosher beef or poultry that have had a kosher slaughtering, according to Jewish law. Common ingredients in kosher hot dogs include poultry or beef, water, spices colorants and flavorings. The meat is prepared in a casing which is removed after it is cooked.
All of the meat used in these hot dogs have got through a kosher slaughtering and the other necessary steps to insure that they kosher. Make sure they have the Kosher Certification symbol on the package.
What is Kosher Certification?
Orthodox Jewish men and women, as well as others who keep the laws of kashrut, must know what is kosher certification. It is essential to know about certification to properly keep the laws of kashrut. A heksher is a marking on a product certifying that that product is kosher. This marking will tell the consumer what agency overlooked the processing of the food and whether the product contains meat, dairy or if it is neutral, or pareva. It will also indicate if the food is glatt kosher, indicating that after the animal was slaughtered, its organs were checked and found to be without legions.
Chalav Yisrael, literally milk of Jews, markings mean that the dairy products milking and manufacturing was overlooked by a Jewish person.
